At last, all the railway tickets are booked. 

The train timings meant that we have an overnight stop en route to the start in Bristol - the journey is now:  Stratford-upon-Avon to Birmingham and then to Bristol, overnight in Bristol and train to Penzance to ride to Land's End - the return is a minibus/trailer from John O'Groats to Inverness to catch a train to Edinburgh (although we are planning to get off at Inverkeithing to ride over the Forth Road Bridge)   Overnight in Edinburgh and a train to Birmingham then Stratford-upon-Avon.

The upside is that other than the Edinburgh-Birmingham sector all the fares are at massively discounted costs.   AND for those that have read the ticket saga in Journal 176, we have the actual, physical cycle tickets!
